UUCF Music & Arts announces its new in-residence orchestra, the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic (WMP). Under the direction of Ulysses S. James, WMP will perform regularly throughout the congregational year in the UUCF Sanctuary.
WMP opens its season with Gwyneth Walker’s dramatic setting of Langston Hughes’ famous poem, “Let America Be America Again,” narrated by Charles Williams. Virgil Thomson’s witty “Symphony on a Hymn Tune” takes hymn tunes and other Americana to a different and thoroughly enjoyable level. Maryland Symphony cellist Molly Jones performs Edward Elgar’s beloved and poetic “Cello Concerto,” his last work for orchestra.
